Classes for September 2020
In September, your new class will be 6L.
Please see their class website page from the morning of Monday 13th July and watch the video to find out who your new teacher will be.
Welcome to 5S!
Your class teacher is Miss Jilani
On Wednesday 8th July we are going to hold a mini sports day with the children during their PE session in school and we would like YOU at home to join in with us!
The activities are as follows:
Standing long Jump – no run up:
You must jump from 2 feet to 2 feet – measure from take off point to your heel where you land.
Speed bounce over cones or a line:
How many times can you jump keeping your feet together sideways over a barrier in 20 seconds?
Lay out/make 3 hoops (approx 3m,5m,7m away from you) and attempt to throw one bean bag (or something similar e.g. socks) into each.
Throw a 4 ball as far as possible using only a chest push motion. No turning or twisting body – 2 hands on the ball – must come from chest.
10 x 10 metres – how quickly can you complete this? (measured in seconds)
Please be creative if you do not have exactly the correct equipment e.g. draw chalk circles instead of hoops, use a pair of socks instead of a beanbag, etc.
Let us know how you get on by sending us your results via Purple Mash or email (email@example.com). You could even send us a video of yourself completing these activities!

Your task over the next two weeks is to create your very own viking long boat! You can make it as large or small as you like!
Make sure you take pictures of you creating your masterpieces!
The best entries will be displayed on the class page!
I have received pictures of brilliant Viking Boats made by children in 5S. The creativity and patience taken to complete these projects must have been immense. I definitely knew these images needed to be shared! Enjoy the detail of these projects!
Project Entry 1: Khadidja
Teacher Commentary: Khadidja has used a wide variety of materials to skillfully craft her Viking Boat. She has kept a lovely colour scheme with the accessories she carefully designed. She included a bold stripey flag and tiny paddles. An impressive project!
Project Entry 2: Elda
Teacher Commentary: Elda has three contrasting colours which show each aspect of her project well. She has skillfully included difficult features such as paddles which would have been used by viking to steer the boat. An impressive project!
Project Entry 3: Zubaydah
Teacher Commentary: Zubaydah has used two block colours which contrast against each other brilliantly! She has also incorporated string art to define the ripples in the sea. An impressive project!
Project Entry 4: Retal
Teacher Commentary: Retal has used a lovely range of colours with the yellow looking almost fluorescent! She has skillfully used 3D shapes to hold her Viking Boat in place. An impressive project!
